    Wish I had you

    What does the paragraph "Wish I had you" means?

    It is not a paragraph, it's a fragment of a sentence and as it stands it doesn't really mean anything.

    This is a sentence fragment, however several meanings could be inferred depending on the context of the rest of the sentence or paragraph.
    For example, in a letter about breaking my knee "I wish I had you," could be in reference to needing help. Gain understanding of the phrase from the general meaning of the material surrounding it. Get clues from the context.

    Thank you, Sharonk123!

    Now I understand... that it can be used in that sentence you said.

    Can I ask again?

    Correct me if I'm wrong... "Wish I had you" Phrase can also refers to a sentence like... Wish you were here beside me?

    Am i correct?

    Sara,
    I broke my knee this week. The yard is a mess and the house is so dusty. I can hardly take care of myself. I wish I had you here to help me.
    Sincerely,
    Ann
    John,
    I miss you so much. It scares me so to think of you so far away and in a war zone. I wish I had you in my arms, safe and sound.
    Love Always,
    Mother
